TUSTIN, California—Authorities say a shooting spree through Southern California has left four people dead, including the shooter, and several injured.

Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said Tuesday the shootings began when deputies responding to a call found a female shot multiple times in a house.

Three more people were fatally shot in the next 25 minutes after carjackings.

Amormino says the suspect shot himself at an intersection.

The motive for the shootings is still unclear. It’s also unclear if the victims knew each other or the shooter.
